Slow Adventures: Unhurriedly Exploring Britain's Wild Places

Hardback

Take a breath. Push aside those spreadsheets. Take a fresh look at the world around you: Slow Adventures will open your eyes to a wealth of new affirming experiences.

Why rush through life when you could stop, ponder and truly experience the world around you? This unhurried exploration of the great outdoors encourages you to engage all of your senses and fully appreciate the beauty of your surroundings. With the emphasis on experiencing, rather than simply passing through, Slow Adventures asks us to pause for a moment and reconnect with nature.

Try willow weaving in Somerset, rock pooling in East Sussex, wild camping in Cambridgeshire, foraging in Herefordshire, spoon carving in Cumbria, fossil hunting in Yorkshire, lino printing in Monmouthshire, bushcraft in Northumberland, sea kayaking in Inverness-shire and many more memorable experiences. 

These immersive adventures will awaken your senses, revive your spirits and allow you to make the most of your time in our glorious countryside.
